Poor sense of direction -possibly agoraphobic

Post by firemonkey » Tue Apr 07, 2015 4:48 am

Due to poor sense of direction unless accompanied by someone I very much stay within my safe zones within the town . I did have a bus pass on account of my mental illness, but a change over of staff at my mental health centre meant I fell through the gap when it came to getting a covering letter for renewal.
Have not attempted to chase it up because basically there is only a couple of routes I feel comfortable with (a) to the hospital (b) to where my mother(who died in 2010) used to live. Other journeys I can't face doing on my own for fear of struggling to navigate my way around when I get off and getting lost and trapped . Ditto with train travel. Getting on a train and getting off at the right station is just a matter of noticing the station signs, but it's making my way around when I leave the train station that is the problem.

With a foot full of bullets I tried to run faster but I just hobbled on to the next disaster.
